I have been working at PerkinElmer full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

The rank and file workers are great, I made a lot of friends and connections there. The work is interesting, and I was able to do some fun projects with my peers.

Cons

No matter how well you do or potential you show there is no way you will get a decent raise or salary track. If you start off at a lower salary you will remain there. Business decisions are all political or financial. They attempt to standardize all business platforms for the companies they acquire regardless of whether it will work for the particular unit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees when they are saying things are going wrong, the people that run the day to day are actually pretty smart and deserve to be heard. Paying below median salaries as a corporate policy does more to alienate workers than increase profits.

    Pros

    free gym, covered parking..that's it

    Cons

    if you have not been there for 20+ years, you have no right to an opinion. The management is the ultimate old boys' club, and look out for each other. They don't provide any training but expect a lot out of you. Health insurance cost is ridiculous

    Pros

    good health insurance and benefits,

    Cons

    it is a portfolio company, that keeps buying others and turn around and then sell it , very unstable co , no R and D just copy and paste and when push come to shove they will look for another small co to buy and use their intellect,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    do not think outside the box rather inside where you might find the solutions to a healthy and prosperous future
